More Information

The Funkstille Gruner Veltliner is a crisp, dry Austrian Gruner Veltliner from the region of Niederösterreich.

Primarily there are notes of pear, melon and citrus. These come through on the nose with a refreshing and zesty finish on the palate.

Viticulture

Interestingly, the Gruner Veltliner grapes are harvested from 15 year + old vines in the Niederösterreich (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lower_Austria). The vineyard is sited on clay and limestone soils, and moreover the climate is cool continental. As a result, this yields a wine with refreshing acidity and primary fruit flavours.

Winemaking

After careful picking, the must is fermented in stainless steel tank with no malolactic fermentation. However then this wine has 8 weeks of lees contact. Finally, there is the process of gentle fining and cold stabilisation.

Food Matching

For the Funkstille Gruner Veltliner, we recommend to pair with chicken, turkey or fresh fish/salad.
